These delightful cazuelas are a go-to dish for the kitchen and will brighten up your table! These classic terra cotta dishes have a cheerful white glaze, and are perfect for roasting meats or potatoes, or for serving your favorite tapas.
These sturdy casseroles are just the right size for a side dish or for cooking classic Spanish favorites like pollo al ajillo (garlic chicken).
Our terra cotta cazuelas are made in Breda, where each one is formed, and small handles are added by hand – called “orejas” in Spain. They are food safe and lead free, perfect for serving any dish, from your favorite tapa to mashed potatoes!
Wash your cazuelas by hand. Before you first use them, clean thoroughly. If you want to bake or cook with them, completely submerge the dishes in water for a few hours, or overnight. When cooking with terra cotta it is essential to avoid big changes in temperature. Heat slowly and allow to cool to room temperature before washing or putting in the refrigerator.
These cazuelas come from the town of Breda in Catalunya, where terra cotta cookware has been the typical cookware since Roman times. The local clay contains a very fine gravel which produces a sturdy terra cotta that holds heat, excellent for keeping meals warm even after the dish is brought to the dining table.
